Today Alex had his four month checkup. He is now 26.5 inches long (90th percentile) and weights 17 lbs (90th percentile). His head is 46.5 cm in circumference (75-90th percentile). Even though his growth has slowed a little (he dropped from the 97th percentile for length and weight), the doctor said he is doing great and is very healthy.
Alex also got his second round of vaccines today. He received four shots and only cried briefly - what a champ!
